Your wedding day is one of the most important and meaningful days of your life.  It should reflect your values, your spirituality, your personality and above all, your love.

And you’re looking for something different in your ceremony ……..
A ceremony that reflects your unique relationship;
A ceremony that captures the excitement of loved ones, the laughter and the tears of joy;
And a ceremony that sets the tone for the new life that you are beginning together.

My name is Colleen Farry and I am passionate about performing memorable weddings. The only agenda I have is to co-create with you the most beautiful ceremony possible.  Since becoming a Celebrant I have officiated in excess of 2000 weddings, including an underwater wedding, triple and double weddings and ceremonies broadcast on national television. While most of my work has been in the Mackay /Whitsunday region, I can conduct a ceremony at the location of your choice.

I am mindful of the tremendous amount of organisation and coordination involved in planning a wedding.   It is my hope that couples do not feel that personalising their ceremony is an additional burden.  I can provide you with simple ceremony ideas, outlines and options, all in the hope of helping you to have the individualised ceremony that you feel comfortable with and that reflects who you are.

Our first step will be to get to know a little about each other, and also talk about how you might like to include friends and family in your ceremony, as well as other service elements such as a sand ceremony, or traditions which reflect your cultural heritage.

After that, I will co-create your unique ceremony for a memory you will cherish forever.  I will email or fax it to you for your approval well before your wedding day so that we are confident it reflects who you are and what you want to say to each other. I will also arrange the legal requirements for your marriage to take place and will look after your official paperwork.

I would love to help you realise your dreams on your special day.

Celebrating your special day your special way!
